People use self-storage for all types of reasons, and at EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we love helping people find the right unit for the right purpose. No matter how many items you have or how long you need to store them, we can show you our selection of storage spaces and assist you with renting the perfect one! In this blog, we’re going to look at five things that people commonly put in storage.

1. Furniture

dreamstime_xxl_41778922When you move into a new house, you want to get the furniture set up as quickly as possible so you can begin enjoying each room to its fullest. You may buy new furniture to fill your new house, and that means your old furniture either needs to be stored or sold. If you don’t have room to store those extra pieces of furniture, a short-term storage lease could be the best alternative.

2. Seasonal Items

Everyone who puts up holiday decorations knows how difficult it can be to find storage space for them once the season is over. You have boxes of lights and decor, and crawling into the attic every winter or finding a spot in the basement can be a challenge. With a small self-storage unit, you can keep those decorations safe for the 10 months of the year when they’re not displayed.

3. Antiques

If you collect antiques or you’ve been given family heirlooms, it’s important to keep them safe. If you’re worried about fire or flood damage in your home, a secure storage unit is a great choice. Our climate-controlled spaces are also ideal, as they can be kept at a specific temperature all year, reducing the risk to antique wood or glass.

4. Appliances

Perhaps you have some rental properties and you’re planning to swap out the old appliances with new ones, or you’re remodeling your house and need somewhere to store your old fridge. Whatever the case may be, if you have appliances that need to be stored, finding room in your house or garage can be difficult. With the right storage unit, you can keep stoves, refrigerators, washers, and more safe and sound for as long as you need.

5. Clothing

If you have some old clothes that you want to save for a garage sale, or you have seasonal apparel such as winter coats and outdoor gear, finding room in your closets can be tricky. By boxing everything up and putting them in storage for the months you don’t need them, you can free up more space in your house.
